We've all come to associate the name Ed Hardy
with trucker hats and the Christian Audigier fashion
line but there is another, more refined Ed Hardy. An upcoming sale of Fine European and American Furniture
and Decorative Arts at Bonhams & Butterfields in San Francisco, California
includes an evening session showcasing furniture and decorations from the Ed Hardy San Francisco Collection. This Ed Hardy
is a prominent San Francisco antiques dealer. His pieces include 17th century Roman giltwood tables, Murano glass chandeliers, modernist furnishings
, Chinese ceramics and a collection of Hellenistic marble fountain masks some of which come from the legendary collection of William Randolph Hearst. The one shown at right, a Roman white marble fountain mask circa 2nd – 4th century is estimated at $2,500 to $3,500. The auction previews open in San Francisco on June 11th. The evening session, devoted to the Ed Hardy Collection, begins at 6 p.m. on June 14.
